      You lose all your teeth the other way and face high chance of choking to death, as it has happened to others before.

      Anyway, Mentos and Coke are bad for health, eaten separatly or not. It contains really bad ingredients like E150d and a lot of chemical products used to make Diet Coke. Drunk everyday, it's really unhealthy. Baking soda an vinegar, even put together, are not toxic at all. They're just natural products used for centuries.

      @James Dude, I saw that episode. Though the stomach did not explode, it expanded so much to the point that it would push other organs out of the way! You would have passed out unconscious from the reaction. Now I know nothing about baking soda and vinegar, but I chose that because I knew about the other.

    Chose blue because aspartame. Aspartame has health code 1, sucrose (table sugar) has health code 0. Aspartame is only better for you than sugar if you are diabetic, or have any other health condition that doesn't allow you to digest sugar.

    The stomach acids negate them both, so nothing would happen.
